Marilyn Marie (Leverson) Balk, 75, of Cresco, IA passed away August 26, 2022 with her family by her side.

“Ma,” as all of us kids called her, wanted a private funeral service.

Ma was born on November 12, 1946 to Harold and Donna (Cheney) Leverson. She was raised on a farm in Lime Springs, IA. On May 15, 1965, she married the love of her life, Willard L. Balk, and they had us 3 kids.

Ma was a stay at home ma and eventually had a part time job. Her main priority was us kids and Dad, and eventually the in-laws, grandkids, great-grandkids and granddogs. Ma and Dad enjoyed driving around and going places. They were truly the best for each other. Ma lost Dad on February 28, 2015, but Ma still did what she wanted. She loved shopping for plants and anything else she wanted or needed. Ma enjoyed crocheting, sewing and taking care of her house and plants.

Ma is survived by her son Brian (Nancy) Balk, daughters Brenda Mackenburg, Kris (Tom) Balk-Omar and her dachshund, Toby; grandkids Alicia Mackenburg, Breanne Balk (Jesse House), Bethany Balk, Alex Mackenburg (fiancé Marissa Ells) and Baylee (Trevor) Malven and great-granddaughter Ella Malven; step-grandkids Lydia (Jacob) Johnson, Becky (Connor) Sirovy and Mitchell Melaas, step-great-grandson Kyson Sirovy and also her furry grandcritters. Ma is also survived by her brother Bruce (Amy) Leverson and their family, brothers-in-law Dale (Suzie) Balk and their family and Dean (Melodee) Balk and their family.

Ma was preceded in death by her husband, her mom and dad and in-laws.

Ma enjoyed and loved life the way she wanted. She and Dad are together again.
